    Correct me if I'm wrong... I'm new to the GT as of today. The Tab 10.1 is missing the ability to run Google Voice, Hulu Plus, Netflix and Skype Video. Are there any other major things it's lacking? I already side loaded Google Voice via Dropbox. I have managed to side load Netflix on other Droid devices but I don't have the binary at the moment. I can't find a working Junos Pulse VPN client.

    I find the screen auto brightness pretty dim.

    The corporate Exchange email was a mine field to set up.

    The dock connector is nearly identical to Apple's but of course we couldn't standardize to save consumers some money.

    I agree the auto-brightness is calibrated too dim. I wish there was a way to adjust the relative brightness...

    Also lack of local networking to read network drives and print to network printers is a HUGE NEGATIVE for me... This is a MOBILE device. I shouldn't have to be chained to a USB cable all day...

    Netflix confirmed working on Galaxy Tab 10.1. You may have to sideload it, the .apk is available on XDA forums.
